Work for Orientation

The Orientation Office provides a variety of opportunities for current students to serve JMU through assisting first-year and transfer students in their transition to campus. Peer connection is a powerful means to show an authentic and dynamic view of the JMU community. Student staff contributions give life to the Orientation programs and leave impressions on incoming students, guests, and one another that last a lifetime. Orientation seeks a group of individuals who embody characteristics that represent the diversity within this community.

As a member of the Orientation team, you will learn, develop and grow in unexpected ways. You will experience personal growth, learn more about JMU academic, business, and student life resources, enhance relationships with faculty and staff, facilitate peer discussions, and create memorable experiences. Through Orientation, your opportunities are endless. The choice is yours – apply for one of the many positions available on the O-Team. We recruit throughout the year so continue to visit this site to view open positions.
